Great catch by Almora 

Yes it was a great catch possibly the game saver . By the way Piscotty cleared all concussion protocals so that's good

Hey, Jay. I read this morning that former Cardinals great Pedro Guerrero was in critical condition after a massive stroke. However he seems to be doing better, as  he was moved out of ICU a few hours ago. He is in a hospital here in NYC. 

 

I had not known he was a Dodgers player. That must have been before I started watching baseball. I only remember him as a Cardinal.

 

Let's pray and hope for the best for him.

Another pitchers' duel at CitiField. In the middle of the 4th, no score. There has been only one hit in the game, which came at the top of the 4th. Let's see if the Mets can get a hit off their old teammate Bartolo Colon.

I am at work right now and been busy so I haven't been able to really follow the game much today. I seen where the Cubs/Cards got postponed.

 

Yep, postponed due to threat of severe weather. It is rescheduled for tomorrow. Day game.

DeGrom pitched a great game. He left after 95 pitches with a 1-0 lead. Our reliever promptly gives up a triple, a walk and a double. He now hit a batter. Ugh.

 

Bases loaded, 1 out in the top of 7th. Pitching change.

 

Update:

2 outs now after strikeout of the PH. Great to see Colon out. He also pitched well.

I got home a little while ago. I can now watch the game on TV and not follow it on my cell.

 

Bottom of the 9th, still tied 1-1. Heart of the order coming up for the Mets. 

 

Update:

 

Leadoff man on with a walk. Cespedes hits into 4-6-3 DP. Grandy flies out. :( Going to extra innings.

I am home now. I went in early today and just worked 12 hours, wore out but just got me a beer and catching up on the sports today. By the way it's 1-1 in the 11th now. I am filling in for someone part of the week. I miss my midnights already! I don't see how people can work days, it's killing me as I did it yesterday too. I could barely stay up and watch the Cubs last night. Things are so much more laid back at night.

Braves scored 2 in the top of the 12th. 3-1 Braves in the bottom of the 12th. 2 out. It is almost 11ET here. Have to sign put -- going to sleep. 

 

Update:

Braves win 3-1

Yeah I just seen that, that is a tough way to lose when you lose in extra's. Mets look like they have outstanding Pitching but not much hitting. You have already posted that though.

Yeah I had Sunday and Monday off but had to go in real early Tuesday and I was tired last night. Today was really tough because I worked 12. I am going in a little later tomorrow so I will be feel better tomorrow. At night it's just easier where I work and once it gets quiet I can get on the internet and follow games.

Yeah where I work at we get a lot of trucks in and it's extremely busy during the day, a lot of walking and keeping track of Tractor Trailers (truck audit's and you have to be 100% on your audit or you can get in trouble). At night not near as bad, + during the day you have to deal with management more which is a complete headache at times. At night I am basically my own boss. I am going in around 7 tonight and gonna watch this Cubs game shortly. I am on vacation after tonight, heading out to my parents house to watch their house and 2 dogs. They are leaving town for a week so time to watch the dogs lmao. My mom is leaving me a bunch of food, cooked me hamburgers and bought me a bunch of lunch meat. My step-dad bought me 2 cases of beer + they have steaks I can thaw out so I will probably cook out over the weekend.

    • Idk if there’s a Leonard like player in this draft, so I think going day 3 is fine. LB is like TE for me. I think it’s mostly a traits based position, so you draft and develop. Look at EJ Speed; sixth round pick from Tarleton who has played great.   And when you factor in the scheme variance you mentioned, LB isn’t worth drafting high. If I were Ballard I’d draft two day 3 LBs and add 1-2 FA vets.
    • Probably something close to what Gilmore signed with the Colts. I guess it'll depend on how high his market is and how long he has to sit and wait to sign somewhere. I'm assume he'll sign something close to 12-15 million per year.
    • This is a story I saw about 6 months ago and sat on it until now — draft season.    There was an interesting story in a Bucky Brooks column and it might be Colts related.   He says he surveyed every team that runs a 4-3 defense and for half of them linebacker is now a deeply discounted position, the way RB is on offense.   The story says that for those teams linebacker is now only a Day 3 draft pick.  They will no longer spend a Day One or Day Two pick on LB.      The column did not break things down by team, so no way to know who thinks this way until the next draft when we see which 4-3 team spends only a Day 3 pick on LB.    Part of the thinking is this….  If a typical game has 65 snaps for the defense, a 4-3 team is only in their base defense roughly 12-15 snaps a game.  Thats it.  The rest of the time 4-3 teams are pulling LBers for more DBs.    Teams are running a 4-2-5, or 4-1-6 or 4-0-7.   So linebackers become much less important in a 4-3 defense.     If Ballard spends a day 2 pick in LB, then he’s trying to replace Leonard.  But if not, if he spends only a Day 3 pick on LB, then CB has had a change of philosophy and has joined other teams in this new defensive thinking.    We’ll know in two months. 
    • Nah. I’ll respond to whatever anyone posts on here, just like you did mine. Are you a cop? If not, you’re missing a hell of an opportunity. You’d be great.   lets see- on this thread there has been a meme about cowboys football, posts about Brock Purdy, and other irrelevant discussions. You didn’t mind those, but you comment on mine? Which if you go back and read, is colts related. You posted a meme of eating popcorn. Lol… The thread is about key dates, which were listed in the first post. Nothing more regarding those dates on this thread. lol. Get outta herrre.
